Your policy store needs you!

Are you a statistical producer?

Are you a member of the Government Statistical Service?

Are you required to adhere to the Code of Practice for Statistics?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Best Practice and Impact Division (BPI) need your help!

Back in 2017, BPI successfully brought a wide range of important documents including policies, standards and guidance together to create the Policy Store; a one-stop-shop for statistical producers to find information that supports them to effectively carry out their roles.

Now that the Policy Store is a year old, we’re planning some iterative improvements to build on this success and further tailor it to your needs. These plans include carrying out user testing and a future rebranding.

Our first task is to improve the filtering system on the page by moving to task based categories and we need your help to decide what these categories should be! We’ve created an online consultation in the form of a card sort exercise and invite you to participate, it should take between five to ten minutes and your response will be a big help to us in ensuring that we best meet the needs of you, our users.

The test will be closing on 7 November 2018 and we’ll use the results to create a first iteration of the task based categories which you’ll then have an opportunity to test and comment on.

If you have any queries or would like further information, please get in touch: gsshelp@statistics.gov.uk.
